Tara's Mini Fashion Week

Day 2: Military...Meet the Runway!

Today's look is mix of military and mod. The bright blue military jacket is reminiscent of 1967 Beatles Sgt. Pepper, which is what my dad told me when I wore this jacket once. I love this look because it is so easy and comfortable, but it is still classy. The gold details of the jacket dress it up and the bracelet sleeve really differentiates this jacket from many others I have seen. What is also nice about this look is that it doesn't even matter what you are wearing underneath. The look is completed by adding dark blue "jeggings" (faux jean leggings) and grey suede booties. 

My makeup look is very simple and something that can be worn day or night. On my eyes I used Brown-Eyed Girl from the Sigma Makeup Neutral Palette. I applied it over the lid and blended in the crease area to help avoid any harsh lines. I have applied a highlighter under the brow and completed the eyes with black eyeliner and mascara. I applied brown mascara to my bottom lashes as well. I finished this look by applying a highlighter to my check bones and a pink lip gloss. 


I liked the idea of a braid with this look, because they are stylish, easy and cute for Spring. The braid is very loose and textured to accent the colors throughout my hair. Don't be afraid to add a headband for those windy days!
